|Vicky and her crocheted fish!|
We even had men helping out!!
Some of the plainer fabrics has fabulous designs drawn on to them!
This is me below with one of the dresses I made. Thanks so much to Abakhan for their generous fabric donation.
The local news came and filmed us and Vicky very bravely made a dress live in front of the cameras!! You can find the news report here
I had an absolute blast and rediscovered my love of sewing dresses! The co-ordination of the charity means that I have little time to actually make any dresses anymore and it was such fun to sew again. A huge thanks to Vicky for all her hard work and enthusiasm. A big thanks to all who donated fabric and trimmings and to people who decorated fabric. Thanks to SESimons for donating reels of bias binding, The Co-op for teabags and biscuits and all the lovely people who came along to sew. So far Vickey has made 107 dresses with more to come. She is already planning next years dress making event and has a plan to knit the whole of Bristol!
